Rally Car Flies Off Course And Ploughs Into Dozens Of Spectators Who Somehow Survive Without Serious Injuries

Story ByMichael Leidig, Sub EditorJoseph GolderAgencyNewsflash

This is the moment an Argentine rally driver loses control of his car whilst driving at blistering speeds across a loose surface sending the car flying into a crowd of enthusiasts who somehow all survived without serious injuries.

The incident occurred during the Tucuman Rally which was held in the Argentine town of Tafi Viejo yesterday (29th August).

Local news site Infobae reports that despite the severity of the crash none of the people who were hit by the speeding car was severely injured.

The video shows the moment Karim Drube, age not stated, driving his highly modified VW Gol comes flying around a corner on a particularly slippery stage of the race.

Karim appears to lose control of the VW as it starts to violently slalom from left to right whilst he struggles to correct course.

The car eventually flies off the track and ploughs directly into a large group of spectators whose bodies can be heard cracking against the car whilst the rest of the crowd screams in terror.

Karim stopped his car and according to Inifobae once he was assured by race organisers that by some miracle no one had been badly injured he continued the race.

Infobae reports that the spectators were not supposed to be standing so close to the track but despite being warned by race officials to back off their enthusiasm for getting as close to the cars as possible got the better of them.

The rally is expected to continue with the next stage scheduled for the 18th and 19th of September in the municipality of Trancas.
